Great 55 Inch Screen

Summary: If you are looking for a 55 inch screen, look no further than this model! This is exactly what the doctor ordered. Clear LCD, 240 speed and it is just beautiful on the wall. Hook this baby up with surround sound and you have a home theater than is affordable as well as beautiful to look at. I had mine installed by a professional; no wires visible. It looks like a picture on the wall over my fireplace.
Summary: I bought this samsung UN55B8000 LED HDTV about a year ago I love everything about this tv. The picture is (3D like) I feel samsung is the best tv out there!!! The price was the best around. Everyone else loves my tv too!
Summary: Before I purchased this TV I researched and researched. And kept coming to the same conclusion. You are not going to buy an LED at this price anywhere. The price was a huge selling point, then came the picture. I read and read about the lighting problem and yes, I did see it once. And yes, if you look really close you can see faint brightness in the corners when it comes to an all black background. Then I did the update for the LED and it seems to have helped.
Summary: This is one amazing TV. Everything seems to look better on it. Blu-rays seriously feel as though they are popping out of the screen. When Super Bowl 44 was on, you could see the shaving knicks on the coaches as they were interviewing them. This TV still exceeds my expectations after having it a couple of months. Many of the comments mention the light coming out of the corners of the display and how once you see it, you can't unsee it. I disagree, but hey what do I know?
Summary: I have had this set since October 2009 and I have not been disappointed in any way. In September I had concerns about some of the reviews complaining about the "white" edges/corners on dark scenes. Well these are rare and very faint. But once you perform a firmware update they no longer show up.
Summary: I have had this set now for about 3 weeks, and it is a beautiful picture. The contrast, detail, brilliance is amazing! If you have older technology you will see an abrupt difference to how you watch TV and movies. I have the BD -P4600 blu ray player as well. It syncs up nicely and works like a charm. If you choose this blu ray player I would not recommend the optional wireless for the TV. It comes with the blu ray so it really doesn't appear to buy you much more.
Summary: This is the best TV I ever seen! Definitely, Samsung is making history with this TV. The picture quality and the slim design deserve one A+. I have not used the internet connections yet, but overall this is a TV that should be added to anyone list. A minor negative comment is the lack of more analogical ports connections and the tight space to connect the cables, when using the Samsung wall mounting (WMN1000B), but this is nothing compared to the picture quality...
Summary: I have had this HDTV for 2 months... by the time you read down to my review, you have already read the technical side of everything related to this TV. I rate it "Amazing & Flawless". ***** Delivery: I had never ordered anything so big from Amazon before. But I am a believer now. One thing to remember - Amazon does not deliver this - their agent does, so get that service's phone number and call them to schedule and verify the date and time.
